Directv question
« on: July 03, 2007, 05:19:37 PM »
From what I've read in this forum can I assume that all I need to do is take one of my receivers from the house (I have 3 receivers on 3 tv's in the house) and plug it in to the rv's  Winguard  roof dish which I haven't tried yet, don't even know if it works? I assume it does.  aim the dish and I should be able to receive a signal. without having to go through and more stuff, hopefully. I will probably be camping within 200 mi. from my home so I won't be in another time zone.   :'(

You may lose your local stations if you get too far from home, but everything else is available anywhere in the country.

The thing about that "200 miles from home" is you might be in the center of a 400 mile circle, or you might be 10 miles from the edge.   You won't know till you try it.

Your plan is sound near as I can tell
